Did you know that Dr. Molidor is now offering acupuncture and laser treatments at EDVC?! We are excited about this new service!
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture uses the stimulation of certain points (neurovascular intersections) on the body, which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological pathways to help the body heal itself.
Channels (lines or meridians) follow nerves, blood vessels, and myofascial planes.
Placement of acupuncture needles in specific points on these channels or in trigger points (taut muscle fibers) will induce a tissue reaction that stimulates the central nervous system to reduce pain, increase endorphins, increase blood flow, improved healing, and stimulate the immune system.
80% of animals are excellent responders.
Chronic cases will need longer treatment periods than acute cases.
Acupuncture, laser and electric stimulation may all be used or combined in certain treatments.
